Wall Street rose on Tuesday after a rise in U.S. factory orders put the S&P 500 just within distance of its all-time intraday high.
The S&P all-time high is 1,576.09, set Oct. 11, 2007.
Data showed February factory orders climbed 3 percent, helped by a surge in demand for volatile aircraft, the Commerce Department said Tuesday.
